Suriname: Combating Money Laundering

From January 30 to February 3, 2017, NCSC hosted an anti-money laundering workshop in Paramaribo for members of the Surinamese judiciary. The workshop was designed to provide judges with the skills necessary to adjudicate money laundering cases successfully. Training sessions included analysis of relevant case law, review of international best practices, and discussion of judicial approaches to the adjudication of money laundering cases.

The workshop was presented by Judges Neil Purcell, and Maarten van Wel, both of whom have extensive experience adjudicating money laundering cases in the Netherlands. The participants indicated that they found the workshop very valuable, and that they look forward to additional training programs in the future.

The workshop was hosted as part of NCSC’s ongoing work under the Justice Sector Assistance to the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative Program (CBSI), funded by the Department of State, Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL). For more information, please visit:
